Sophie Rose is a Senior Biosecurity Policy Adviser at the Centre for Long-Term Resilience, a UK-based policy think tank, where her work focuses on policy solutions at the intersection of emerging technologies and biosecurity. This has ranged from how to advance genetic engineering detection and attribution technology as part of a broader deterrence by denial strategy, to evaluating governance strategies for nucleic acid synthesis and AI-enabled biological tools.
Previously, Sophie was a Research Fellow at the Center for Health Security at Johns Hopkins. She has held biosecurity fellowships with both the Council on Strategic Risks and the Center for Health Security (Class of 2023 Emerging Leaders in Biosecurity Initiative (ELBI)).
Sophie holds an MHS in Infectious Disease Epidemiology from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and a BS in Human Biology from Stanford University.
